Rating: 3/5 -- An almost classic if it were not for the silly feminine element which hurts clever story.

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Quigley Down Under is a handsome film, well-acted, and it's a shame the filmmakers didn't spend a little more energy on making it smarter and more original. Full Review

Product Description:

Quigley (Tom Selleck) is an American sharpshooter imported from the heat and dust of the Old West to the heat and dust of the Australian outback to fight off rustlers. Upon arrival, he learns he's been hired to kill Aborigines by a heartless rancher, which disgusts Quigley, so he runs off into the bush with a woman he's rescued. The local aboriginals discover him, and help him and the woman survive in the outback long enough for Quigley to return and seek vengeance.

Plot Synopsis:

Quigley, a stoic American sharpshooter from the old West, travels to the untamed wilderness of the Australian outback after answering an advertisement calling for a man who's handy with a rifle. Once in Australia, the Yank discovers that he's been hired by a despicable landowner named Marston who (with the government's support) wants him to eradicate the area's aboriginal population. Furious, Quigley throws the wealthy despot out a nearby window -- and thus begins a heated vendetta by the spurned Marston to exact deadly revenge against the principled outsider.
